Winter visit to Dog Lake and the waterfall on the stream that feeds it

At least once every winter I try to visit the waterfall on the stream that feeds Rainbow Lake (AKA Dog Lake) about twenty miles from here on the Flathead Indian Reservation, and I chose today for this winter’s visit. I included snowshoes with my equipment, but found them to be unnecessary this time: it was one of the areas that received very little of last night’s snow. To my surprise I found instead a brief period of sun and some blue sky!

Visit to a Waterfall

Filed under: Waterfall — Tags: , , , — montucky @ 7:46 pm

Every year, at some time during winter, I try to visit the waterfall that stands about a quarter mile from the northeast corner of Dog Lake (Rainbow Lake) on the Flathead Indian Reservation. I missed completely last year and for one reason or other didn’t make it this winter until today. Some of the ice still remains despite the warm temperatures, and today the sun was out and the sky was blue. A good day for a visit.

In the old days this lake on the Flathead Indian Reservation was called Dog Lake. I have never understood why the name was changed.

Rainbow Lake; frozen

This is the lake that was so blue in the photos posted a few days ago. Now it is completely frozen over and that surface you see is clear ice. I thought the picture might look good with the WordPress snowflakes

Cold waterfall

This waterfall is found on the Flathead Indian Reservation near Rainbow Lake. In three seasons its roar can easily be heard at some distance: now it is nearly silent, its water runs behind the ice.
